Want to remove sidebar

  1. I tried to remove the sidebar by de-activating all the widgets, but it did not work. The sidebar even still has pages I have deleted from the website altogether. I keep trying to update it so it will remove those pages and the sidebar stuff, but it just does not work. Do I need to change the CSS/HTML to do this? I successfully did it on one of my other blogs with a different theme, but this one is not working.

    The blog I need help with is findagoodwriter.wordpress.com.

  2. Please read this > Introduction to Structure > http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2010/05/01/introduction-to-structure/
    To locate another theme see here > http://theme.wordpress.com/

  3. De-activating all the widgets will actually make the theme display a default set of widgets as defined by the theme.

    That's because you are using a custom menu. Custom menus must be adjusted manually to remove pages you have deleted. You can do that through the Appearance → Menus page in your blog dashboard. Here is a related help page which may also help you:

    However, you can use the CSS editor in the Custom Design upgrade to completely hide the sidebar in the Ascetica theme if you'd like. Here's how:

    #secondary {
    	display: none;
    }
    
    #primary {
    	width: 100%;
    }

    Add that to your Appearance → Custom Design → CSS editor and click the Preview button to see how it would look.
